Deal alert / The Jam: Setting Sons box

The Jam‘s Setting Sons super deluxe box has been discounted before but never as cheap as it is right now on Amazon Germany.

At the time of writing (7.30 BST 19/4/16)  it can be bought for around £31 (€40) which is the lowest price-tag I’ve seen on this 3CD+DVD box set.

  1. ADRIAN BARRETT says:

    The same can be bought on Amazon UK for £30 from some of the secondary sellers – brand new.

  2. John says:

    Back to €58. Have to move fast around here!

  3. Steve says:

    58 euro now (8:43) – that was quick!

  4. Geoff says:

    It’s still on .de for that price but you have to look at other sellers on the right hand side of the page and select ‘Amazon’. Still €39.99 as at 20;51.

  5. Ern says:

    It’s still cheap via the secondary sellers

  6. Sladesounds says:

    Like Adrian missed the german offer so got one from Amazon UK other suppliers for £30.00

  7. John says:

    How’s £31 for 3 CDs and a DVD a bargain?
    Not sure how much this set originally was but it must’ve been bloody expensive :/

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      It’s less than a third of the price when it came out (£95), so in that respect it’s a bargain. These deals are always about the price at the time of the DEAL compared to what it was previously available for, they aren’t some comment on how good the product is in terms of overall value. Although four discs in a massive hardback book and a slipcase for £31 is hardly bad value anyway.

  8. Dave H says:

    The mastering on the Setting Sons box set is also much better than the other two recent re-releases of Sound Affects and The Gift Box Set.

    Someone seemed to think adding treble (especially on the hi-hats) and losing bass is a good thing. If you have ‘The Gift’ box set and the more recent ‘About The Young Idea’ compare ‘Town Called Malice’ and you’ll hear what I mean. On ‘Sound Affects’ compare ‘Start’.

    Not sure if this is an itunes thing but to me, The Jam were all about Bruce Foxton’s driving bass so to hear it sounding so thin, I don’t understand!

    The ‘About The Young Idea’ compilation was remastered at Abbey Road and the bass sound is solid and extra treble hasn’t been added though some people may people the extra treble sound.

  9. Dave H says:

    A better track to compare from the recent Sound Affects deluxe issue is ‘That’s Entertainment’. All you can hear on the Sound Affects version is treble-ly percussion. It isn’t so prominent on the ‘About The Young Idea’ version.

    Did anyone else think the same as me?

  10. Joachim says:

    got it at amazon.de for 39 Euros (including postage) from a marketplace vendor, great!

  11. Paolo Meccano says:

    Hmmm. I already have everything apart from the 14 unreleased tracks, so even this price isn’t enough of a bargain for me, unfortunately :-/
